It is reported that the Chinese pianist has signed with CAA, the Los Angeles talent and sports agency, ‘in all areas’.
This will include ‘his touring, soundtracks, digital content, endorsements, personal appearances and philanthropy.’
That’s a huge move for a classical artist.
Subject to confirmation, it means that Lang Lang has parted company with Cami Music and its boss, Jean-Jacques Cesbron, who has directed his career from the outset. Earlier this year, Cesbron lost the influential Chinese conductor Long Yu, who is Lang Lang’s close collaborator.
The move will also mean that Lang Lang is hungry for an even bigger slice of the celebrity lifestyle.
